WE choose this cruise because of the interesting itinerary. Been on lots of NCL cruise and this ship was so flawed. NOW the smoke issue. The ship is stale with smoke and there were not that many people smoking now. The Casino is in the middle of the ship and the smoke goes everywhere on Deck 6,7, and 8. You can't go to most restaurants in the area without the smell of smoke. SO after 10 Days, my allergies were in full bloom. There was sick people everywhere with colds. DR visit was $ 199 for an appointment. BUt the medical staff was good The Spa area was another thing. Staff was good, but the SPA area is way too small for that many people. There was actually a huge people demanding the SPA package be refunded. Don't waste your money like we did on a SPA suite. BIG waste as the was often no place to sit in area. One staff member kept telling people who were not loud to quit down. She was more annoying that the few talkers.

Fun itinerary but a ship full of missteps

Cabin Review

Spa Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B9
A cabin steward that was not very good. He was pleasant but lost our laundry for 4 days, but did find it after we asked him twice. Had little to do in our cabin because we are neat folks and I was sick for 8 days on the cruise and stayed in my room a fair amount. Rarely cleaned when we put our cleaning light on and often didn't have our cabin clean while we were out all day. Cabin fine, but an old mattress.
